Tennessee linebacker Darrell Taylor spoke to the media in the Main Room in a group session on Tuesday at SEC Football Media Days.

He covered a lot of different topics including the importance of current players selling recruits.

“That’s how you get guys to come to your school. That’s how you get the best guys to come to your school. It’s just by getting your players to recruit and getting them familiar with the recruiting process. Just let them know that it’s okay to choose who you want to choose. Just make sure you’re making the right decision for yourself. Just keeping it real with them. When we recruited Quavarris Crouch (true freshman LB) I was his host and I kept it real with him. You want to go somewhere that you’re going to fit in, where you want to fit in and where you like best and where you feel like it’s a family because that’s how it felt like for me when I came here.”
